foolproof boiled eggs

6 large eggs

Place eggs in medium saucepan, cover with 1 inch of water, and bring to boil over high heat. Remove pan from heat, cover, and let sit for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, fill a medium size bowl with 1 quart of water and 1 tray of ice cubes (or equivalent). Transfer eggs to ice bath with slotted spoon; let sit 5 minutes. Tap eggs all over against the counter surface to crack surface, then roll gently back and forth a few times. Begin peeling from the air pocket end. The shell should come off in spiral strips attached to the thin membrane.
